We had lunch of prawn and fish curries at the Pink Elephant - both delicious. The restaurant isn't on the beach, but has a great relaxed atmosphere. Would be a great place for evening drinks. The staff were lovely and went to a huge effort to get change for us as we only had a large note. Highly recommended.

Nice place and relatively cheap compared to the places on the beach. The prawn curry was amazing, although not really sri lankan.

This place is a must when you are in Unawatana. The staff are friendly and the drinks are great. I met some lovely people in here so it's a great place to meet people if you're travelling solo. Great laid-back vibe with comfy beanbags and cushions to chill out on.

Lively place for a more lively dinner. Great place to meet people if you're travelling alone. Right on the main road, with good music, and shisha on sofas.

Much better food here than at hotel flower garden which is ranked higher on trip advisor strangely. Fresh, flavourful well cooked meat kebabs with a HUGE plate of salad, chips, dips and pitta to accompany it. On holiday we often eat late breakfast then one main meal at 3/4pm- this place is perfect in that respect as portions are huge.... More

I was lured into this place by the hummus wrap posted on the white board, however, it was rather average. We walked in and sat down. After 10-15 minutes, the server finally came over to greet us and take our order. Food: I ordered the hummus wrap and my husband order the "tuna melt." Both of our wraps should have... More

Pink elephant offer an exciting and different range from the other restaurants in the town. Many are Middle Eastern based - Kebabs, Houmus, Pitta bread but their Sri Lankan dishes and specials are just as tasty.

This place is so laid back. It is staffed by guys who nearly seem to be hanging out rather than working (in a positive way). The food is fantastic, the drinks are delicious and the guys working there are so accommodating. Coconut drinks are literally cut from the plant in front of you, the food is served piping hot, in...

Its bare basic, you cant expect too much from the place, but it has excellent staff, good music played all the time, ideal location - just opposite the beach. Really nice friendly atmosphere. Everyone - staff and guests are friendly
